Advanced Dental Admission Test

The Advanced Dental Admission Test (ADAT) is an admission test designed to provide advanced dental education programs with a means to assess applicants’ potential for success. Third- and fourth-year dental students and practicing dentists interested in post-graduate training (e.g., in a dental specialty area), and international dental students applying to advanced dental education programs or advanced standing in pre-doctoral programs, are encouraged to apply to take the ADAT. The ADAT is being administered at Pearson VUE test centers in the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Canada from May 16 to August 31, 2016. Applications for the 2016 ADAT are no longer available. Please select the highlights below for more information about the ADAT.

The ADAT consists of multiple-choice test questions presented in English, and includes a battery of four tests on the following: Biomedical Sciences; Clinical Sciences; Data, Research Interpretation, and Evidence-Based Dentistry; and Principles of Ethics and Patient Management.
